Fuzzy Pants...

I shared images of our beautiful magnolia blossoms with you on Easter Sunday. Today, I want you to see how a person can find something unexpected when one takes a closer look.

First, I noticed that the pods covering the magnolia blossoms are fuzzy. Then, I realized that, as the blossom starts to open, it completely sheds that outer covering to reveal the beautiful, large, white flowers inside.

I searched the ground under the tree to look for some of those shed coverings and found this one...
I started to giggle looking at it. Do you know what I thought of as I held it in the palm of my hand?

Fuzzy, corgi pants!

I'm keeping that blossom covering for myself, but if anyone is interested in some of the fuzzy pods for some of their artwork, let me know. I'm happy to send out a handful of them! They're all dome-shaped and unique. (The first two people to request them will get some in the mail.)

I finished my commission project yesterday and will be back working on the Summertime quilt again. Hope you have something creative planned for today!

  19. It is amazing what we find in nature when we least look for it - like when my hubby and me found these beautiful cedar roses on a nature walk. :) Those pods are gorgeous - they truly do look like fur! Especially the fur of one cute little corgi. :) Theresa
